The Vision for our Training Centre and Family Lodges
Our vision includes investment in the development of a modern, purpose built Training Centre at our existing North Camp site which will bring in additional revenue and provide a mechanism to support the future sustainability of the whole centre. Whilst the new School and Youth Facility will generate sufficient revenue to cover expenditure, any surplus we can generate through our corporate arm will be used to keep prices low for schools and youth groups and ensure we can continue to target those most in need and further invest in the maintenance of the new build.
The new Lakeside Training Centre will offer superb modern facilities and quality accommodation tailored to meet business requirements and will address issues concerning the quality of our current accommodation, dining areas and lack of evening social/recreational facilities which corporate customers have raised as a barrier to using Lakeside in its present state.
The Training Centre will include:
- en-suite accommodation for up to 61 visitors over 3 floors;
- a modern ICT enabled training room;
- additional breakout areas for small group training activities; and
- a range of catering facilities, including a restaurant/dining area;
Finally, we will build a new range of twelve quality, family focussed eco friendly lodges that can accommodate 6 people. These will replace the current worn out lodges already on site and will be geared towards offering a unique opportunity for family groups to access short-term residential ‘Lakeside Experience’ packages as well as being available for overflow accommodation for our school, youth and corporate clients.
